VA. SATURDAY, NOVEI~ER 8, 1ff/$ SALE TIME: 1:00 P. M. A membership of 5.546 farm families was reported by John Butler. field services director, as being the largest in 22 years. The voting delegate body took action on a number of policies to be pursued by Farm Bureau in 1976. They opposed the creation of the office of Lieutenant Governor. While supporting an increase in both the state and federal inheritance tax exemptions, and the increasing of state income tax exemptions and deductions to the same as those allowed on federal tax returns, they voiced strong opposition to the removal of the 3% sales tax on food. Recognizing that the proper use of land resources is of utmost import- ance, the delegates re-affirmed their opposition to federal land use planning. They stated that land use planning should be done at the lower levels of government because they are closest to the people. They recom- mended that planning commissions should be made up only of persons livi~ in the area for which plans are being formulated. t! Now that cooler breezes are blowing and the sneezes are growing, there's no need to go rushing to youi doctor for a flu shot unless you are in what's known as ~ "high risk" group. group is subject to a greater danger of serious complications or even death from influenza. Otherwise, you shouldil't be panicked into insisting on an influenza injection. Dominic Gaziano, M. D., President of the West Virginia Thoracic Society. the medical arm of the West Virginia Lung Association. said the "'high risk" group consists of people with chronic pulmonary disease and other chronic ailments. It also applies to older persons, especially those 65 or over. 3 pc.

Dr. Gaziano said. "you might just as well endure the flu symptoms, should the infection strike you, without worrying too much. If you are a high risk individual, however, you're strongly urged to get your annual flu immunization by mid-November." "Only about 10 to 15 percent o| the people who should be getting flu shots receive them each year," he said. "High-risk people should be immunized regardless of the amount of influenza expected." Dr. Gaziano explained that healthy individuals are advised to hold back for the following reasons given by public health authorities: -Inactivated flu vaccine, although the best available means of protection. has variable effectiveness. -Attack rates of flu in community outbreaks are usually relatively low, and it's difficult to predict whether an epidemic is coming that might call for wider preventive measures. -Serious complications from flu are low for healthy people in the general population. -Cost and availability of the vaccine are factors to be considered. Too many unnecessary innoculations may divert vaccine from those who need it more. If you're not at "high-risker" and you still think you ought to have a flu shot, let your doctor be the judge, Dr. Gaziano advised. The chronic lung diseases for which annual flu injection is recommended include emphysema. chronic bronchitis, asthma, and tuberculosis. Other chronic disorders that put a patient in the high-risk classification include heart disease, kidney ailments, and diabetes. High-risk individuals can obtain flu shots from their family physician, from chest clinics in general hospitals. or from health department immuniza- tion programs. State Department of Education officials have praised Gilmer County High School's new career exploration program for ninth graders. Jean Davis and Robert Martin said after observing the pro-vocational program in operation here for the first time said the county's program is the most advanced in the state. The pro-vocational program is primarily a survey course which Mows students to become acquainted with possible vocational or technical which could later be pursued at the new Gilmer-Calhonn Career Center. Mrs. Annetta Summers is cur- rently teaching sewing, communica- tions, typing and shorthand three periods a day. Lee Williams is teaching construction. Areas to be added later include health, nutrition, drafting, electronics, home maintenance, and hand bench work. Each student may explore every area for one week and then select four or five areas to study in greater depth for a three-week period. Four persons have recently been employed by the Gilmer County Board of Education through Gov. Arch A. Moore's Manpower Program. which provides approximately $20,000 for salaries, according to Ronald Welty, superintendent. Yvonne Barreth of Sand Fork, Carolyn Pritt of Troy, and Lena Miner of Tanner have been employed as school library aides. The positions are for 12 months. Previously there were no adult aides in school libraries, said Welty. Their employment will also aid in summer library programs by encouragingyoungsters and their parents to utilize school library facilities, said Welty. In addition, Jack Heater was employed at the Board central office as assistant financial clerk. He is a graduate of Glanville State College with a degree in Business Administra- tion.

Phony bomb threat at G$C men's dora Campus police are .~till investi- gating a phony telephoned bomb threat at Glenville State College's Louis Bennett Hall, a men's residence, early Wednesday morning. October 29. Students stood outside the dormitory in their bedclothes for nearly two hours as firefighters from the Gilmer County Fire Department conducted a room-to-room search. beginning at approximately 3:30 a.m. No bomb was found, however. "Needless to say. we are upset about the incident." said Dr. D. Banks Wilburn. GSC president. "'This kind of thing is a rarity here,'~ he continued, "and campus police are investigating." Dr. Wilburn said two or three telephoned bomb threats were made two years ago but ceased when word spread that a telephone tracing system was being utilized to nab a suspect.
